Mustard is an integral ingredient in several condiments, itself having a distinct and prominent flavour. However, aside from its popularity as a culinary ingredient, it is very useful as a medical tool. Consuming mustard seed is helpful for regulating the digestive system, as the seed is packed with fibre and magnesium. Yellow mustard seed is also excellent for balancing cholesterol levels, making it a great ingredient in preventing cardiovascular diseases.
Mustard seeds were dubbed a symbol of faith in the bible, which has given it an association with faith, protection, and good fortune. Carrying mustard seed on your person is said to attract good luck, as well as protect the carrier from diseases, malefic spirits, and other bodily ailments such as headaches and colds. Carry mustard seed to amplify your courage and provide drive. In some Italian Folk magic traditions, mustard seed is sprinkled in front of one's door to deter supernatural beings from entering.
